Binding will not last....writing is to small

Great Desert Tracks

This is now about 5 years old (published 1918). Lots of things change in that time. When can we expect an updated version?

Great Desert Road Book

I love the layout and information provided about the outback desert areas covered in this compilation of maps. I would love to see more detail though on the actual maps with regard to smaller track, alternate or less traveled tracks that are often not shown on the maps at all, and for alot of the smaller track lines shown it is hard to find their names.
